Lexington, Ky. (May 23, 2017) – Continuing Care Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, has received a top honor from the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA), demonstrating dedication to patient safety and care.
On May 19, six hospitals were recognized with KHA Quality Awards at the 88th Annual KHA Convention in Lexington, including Continuing Care Hospital and Our Lady of Peace, both part of KentuckyOne Health. The KHA Quality Awards honor hospital leadership and innovation in quality, safety and commitment to patient care.
Continuing Care Hospital received a Quality Award for its antimicrobial stewardship program, which reduces the amount of antibiotics administered to patients. The program offers several benefits, including the reduction of antibiotic resistance and lowering clostridium difficile (bacteria) rates in the hospital.
